Photographs from my Fathers collection.

My Dad worked at de Havilland at Stag Lane, Edgware, Middlesex before the War and re-joined the company after he was demobbed. He served in the RAF in Egypt, Palestine and India as an airframe fitter and also spent some time aboard HMS Courageous. The photographs came into my possesion after his death but I remember being facinated as a small boy by the pictures of the 'crashes'

My many thanks go to Mr Martin Wilkinson who has identified many of the aircraft and a copy of these photographs will join his excellent collection which can be viewed here
